Christmas is an occasion that is cherished for many reasons. Whether it is because of quality time spent with loved ones, the exchange of thoughtful gifts or the colourful decorations, something about Christmas just gives us that tingly sense of comfort and happiness all wrapped in one loving package.

And out of all the wonderful reasons of why the world loves Christmas, we can all agree that the sound of Christmas songs is one of the most merry parts of the entire celebration. And that’s exactly why we’re looking forward to being gifted with these new and exciting Christmas albums this year:
